After qualifying as a viticulturalist Luis Seabra completed a Masters in Winemaking. He went on to become Head Oenologist at Niepoort and received great acclaim in that position.
After nearly a decade of doing something he loved for someone else, Luis decided to start making wine in his own winery. He was incredibly knowledgeable about wine making in the Douro, but decided to explore the terroir in a different, less conventional way than other producers. Mono-varietal, highly extracted and heavily oaked reds have dominated winemaking in the Douro for the last few decades. Instead, Luis strives to achieve balance and finesse, preserving as much of a vineyard’s character in his wines as possible.
